Help–my waffles are sticking to the pan! I spray the waffle iron with canola oil before spreading the batter. What am I doing wrong?

 

If your waffle iron or pan has a nonstick surface, you should not use cooking spray. Cooking spray builds up on nonstick surfaces and eventually becomes tacky–rendering the non-stick coating useless. Brush oil lightly over the surface of your pan instead: if the spray build-up hasn't ruined the pan, this should work.

Also, be sure you are not trying to take the waffle out of the pan too soon; if it is not thoroughly cooked, it will stick.
